Best Acupuncturist

Winner: Kermit Stick

Eastwind Health Associates, 2176 Windsor Street, 422-3760 Since moving to Halifax nearly a decade ago from his native Seattle—via Boulder, Colorado—Kermit has used Sticktoitiveness to build a loyal local following and become Halifax’s Best Acupuncturist. News of his wonderful touch has also spread far and wide, and he was once commissioned to lay the healing hands on Winona Ryder (which he downplays, although if you needle him enough he will talk). Be warned, however, that the Eastwind Health Associates building is not huge: Take care when visiting to make sure you aren’t caught in any sort of professional rivalry between Stick and Cary Brosius, the category’s runner-up. With all those sharp objects around, you could wind up in a sticky situation.
